- Vhong Navarro is an excellent dancer
- He became popular through the 90s dance group Street Boys
- Vhong revealed the mistake that led him to become a part of the group
It was a surprising revelation when Vhong Navarro shared that he was not supposed to be a part of the popular Street Boys, but a different dance group.
The dancer-host told the story on the February 3 episode of It's Showtime.
Co-host Anne Curtis was giving tips to a "Tawag ng Tanghalan" semifinalist about humble beginnings.
Vhong then shared his audition story for the Street Boys.
"Meron akong isang kaibigan, gwapo. Nag-audition din, sabay kami," began Vhong, who did not name the friend he was referring to.
"Ngayon, tatawagan ako dapat dun sa kabilang grupo. Tapos yung gwapo kong kaibigan dun sa Street Boys," explained Vhong.
However, for some reason, Vhong entered the Street Boys room.
"Nakitang ganun, naglalakad na ganun yung manager ko, si Direk Chito. Nakita niya, 'Uy, sino 'tong isang 'to?'
"'Direk, 'yan 'yung pinapatawag mo.'
"'Ay, hindi 'yan, 'yung isa, 'yung gwapo,'" Vhong recounts the exchange between Direk Chito Roño who organized the Street Boys, and a staff during his audition.
It turned out that the staff made a mistake and called Vhong for the Street Boys and his friend for the other group.
"Pero ibig sabihin nu'n, destiny," said Vhong.
Jhong Hilario, another Street Boys member and host of It's Showtime, confirmed the story.
Jhong said that the dancer who was supposed to be part of Street Boys was his neighbor.
He revealed that Direk Chito had no choice but to accept Vhong in the group because the other group's manager don't want to make an exchange.
"Sabi ni Direk Chito, 'sige siya na lang.' Kasi ayaw ibigay nung isang manager 'yung isa kasi gwapo," said Jhong with a laugh.
The Street Boys is a popular dance group in the 90s.
Some of its most popular members are Vhong Navarro, Jhong Hilario, Spencer Reyes, and Danilo Barrios.
The group was formed in 1993.
Since disbanding, its members have moved on to have solo careers as dancers, TV hosts, and actors.
